Last weekend Eric, Emily, and I were in Beaver, PA to visit my family (and nurse them back to health). Before we arrived, my mom underwent two eye surgeries to fix a detached retina, and my sister was recovering from jaw surgery. So, in order to entertain our "patients" I thought it would be a good time to give Emily her first taste of rice cereal. I wasn't expecting too much, since she hasn't shown a whole lot of interest in eating anything that doesn't come from a bottle yet. I tried a few spoonfuls, but she was rather dubious of the whole project and even though I've tried a few more times since this first attempt, I think it will still be a little while before she's getting much nutrition from these experiences.
